Luxury Attitude co-founder, Lionel Meyer said: “The luxury industry is constantly seeking qualified personnel in a global environment due to the sector‘s rapid expansion and the emergence of the middle and upper classes in highly developed countries. Luxury brands all agree that exercising a profession in contact with Luxury customers requires specific skills, yet no reference label exists in this field. And that wherever they are, Clients must receive exceptional service. In turn, the Employees must be able to evolve thoroughly and professionally in a highly emotional universe. Our new eLearning Programme provides consistency across a global environment and a universal standard in performance requirements.“
You Make Luxury Come True
A two-part learning platform, the programme offers learners a series of an 11-episode eMovie to start with, through which they follow the story of two protagonists learning the meaning of luxury. The high point is a mix of reality and fiction, each episode revealing a distinguished guest from the luxury industry who shares his personal vision on the episode’s theme. These exceptionally powerful experts come from diverse backgrounds in luxury brands, each of them bringing a unique take on the theme through concrete messages, which are then decrypted by the two co-founders: Erik Perey and Lionel Meyer.
A course of educational activities is then offered to learners in the second part of the programme, in order to understand, act and commit to each taught concept. This learning path immerses candidates in multiple practical luxury dimensions. The learners are then asked to contextualize their newly acquired knowledge in their own environment, where they are placed in concrete situations and can quickly reap the benefits.
Upon completion of this course, the Candidates become “Luxury Attitude Certified”. This distinction offered by the Luxury Attitude Academy endorses the ability of the Candidate to be more effective by validating its soft skills knowledge vital in a profession involving contact with Clients in the Luxury universe. Being “Luxury Attitude Certified” means becoming a valuable player in the Client Experience and the reputation and success of the largest hotels and luxury brands.
What are the benefits of “You Make Luxury Come True“ programme?
